If you send an email be sure to put findagrave in the subject line. Sometimes mail lands in the spam box. Anything that lands in SPAM is automatically deleted without opening.
Please DO NOT post photos of obituaries on my memorial pages. If you send me the info I will be glad to post it as long as you give me source and date of the article. If you do not want to type it, send me a photo copy and I will type it.
Per findagrave guidelines "Similarly, you may NOT scan an obituary and add it as a photograph to a memorial record."
I ALSO WISH PEOPLE WOULD QUIT POSTING DEATH CERTIFICATE PHOTOS. If there is additional info on them use the edit tab to provide the information.
PLEASE, PLEASE use the edit tab in the upper right of the memorial page, click on the appropriate selection and fill in the blanks or select suggest a correction and make your comment, suggestion, transfer request etc. This makes it easier for you and me.
A number of memorials in Saranac Cemetery in Saranac, Michigan have been transferred to me. If you have any additional info about any of these I will be glad to transfer them.

Hi, Dottie! I came across a duplicate memorial for my cousin in Colonial Grove in Virginia Beach. It duplicates the one I created for him 2 years prior to your memorial. Is there a way we can merge the two entries? Thanks for all your hard work! Helen Barnes
|William Low||Mary Lelia Land Cromwell|
Is there a Mary Lelia Land Cromwell (1887-1915) buried near Oakley Carrol Cromwell (90219280)? She was his wife and according to her death certificate she was buried in Forest Lawn in November 1915. I don't see her listed in Find a Grave for this cemetery.
|Teresa Davis||Weldon Grant Smith and Rosa|
Thank you so much for posting the pictures of the stones of Weldon Grant Smith and his wife, Rosa Edwards. This week I was in Nanning, China and shared with Weldon's grandchildren and G-grandchildren the place where Weldon and Rosa are buried. It was very emotional. Thank you for taking the time to go out and take this photo. It was most kind of you.
|Harrell Parker||May Edla Earley|
Thank you very much for the transfer.
Hope you will have a GREAT day.

Dottie, thanks for your reply about Evelyn Edwards' memorial (# 65696532). We think you misunderstood our intent. We appreciate that you created this memorial and maintain it. There is no question regarding what you put into it. As an FYI, we simply pointed-out that her age at death, as stated in her obituary, is incorrect - it should be 80, not 70. Therefore it does not "correspond to dates on her tombstone". Whether is was a typographical error in her obituary, or it was transcribed with this mistake, it is still incorrect - it could be changed or designated as [sic].
Anyway, at this point, we don't think she cares about it ;-)
Thanks again for your efforts on these memorials!

Dottie , thanks for the confirmation of parents for this child. I will be on look out for those birth and death records now online for Virginia on Ancestry. Wished more states did this. I think NC does but only up to around year 1975 I believe. TY, J&R
|Remembering the Forgotten||Charlie Reynolds|
Good Morning! Could you please transfer this memorial to me. He is my great-uncle on my mothers side. Thanks so much!!
|Brenda Dudley Eanes||RE: William Akers Jr.|
Not sure which is right will try and find out and will. and will correct.
|Brenda Dudley Eanes||William Akers Jr.|
I check and could not find a another Memorial for William Aker in Den Hill Cemetery.
|Agate||Lucy Sears Sills|
Regarding the edit you declined for her parents & spouse: Lucy's birth & death dates were mis-transcribed. She was born on Jul. 31, 1898 and died on Jan. 9, 1965. Her parents were Robert Lee Sears (#30530331) & Mattie Baker Sears (#30530319). I can send you a copy of her death certificate, if you would like to verify. Thank you.
